Multidisciplinary approach to diffuse parenchymal lung disease

Berzelius symposium 94

1-3 June 2017 in Stockholm Sweden

Venue: The Swedish Society of Medicine, Klara Östra Kyrkogata 10 in Stockholm

This international course is designed to give a review of diffuse parenchymal lung diseases with clinical, radiologic and pathological correlations. The course will run for
two and half days and will consist of a series of presentations with corresponding multidisciplinary sessions. The speakers are expert thoracic clinicians, radiologists and pulmonary pathologists. The presentations will illustrate the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to solving difficult
problems in diffuse parenchymal lung disease.

This multidisciplinary international course could be one of the very few courses offered in the world concerning this type of disease, giving lectures and practical sessions with very well known lecturers.

By the end of this course the participants should have a better understanding of the importance of correlation between clinical, radiologic and pathologic data in diagnosis and management of diffuse parenchymal lung disease.
Welcome to Stockholm in June 2017!
